Fried Apples with Oatmeal

I’m always looking for ways to jazz up my oatmeal. I’ve been eating the morning mush at least a couple times a week since the day my little mouth could handle it. Although once in awhile I do enjoy a nice bowl of simply seasoned oatmeal, plain can get old pretty quickly. Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to spice up those heart-healthy oats. One of my favorites is turn my bowl into what I consider a suitable breakfast apple pie. Okay, so it’s not exactly your classic pie, but the apples in this recipe simmer down into a filling that’s as good as any I’ve ever tasted. And with this much healthier version of dessert for breakfast, you can feel 100% good about what you’re eating too. Enjoy.

Fried Apples

(Serves 3-4)

-5 medium apples (Whatever variety is in season or looks best), peeled and thinly sliced
-1 Tbs. oil
-1 tsp. cinnamon
-Honey, to taste
-Salt, to taste
-1 cup oats
Heat the oil in a large skillet pan. Add the apples and cinnamon and cook until soft, approx. 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with honey. The amount of honey will vary depending upon the variety of apples used. Sour, cooking apples such as Granny Smith may require more honey than a sweeter variety such as Jonagold.

As the apples cook, prepare oats according to package. Remove from heat, add a pinch of salt, and serve alongside fried apples.

    Those fried apples look amazing! I wish I had some apples in my fridge to make this.

    Apples in the grocery store have not looked the greatest lately – I need to check out a different store.

    Mmm, I haven’t had fried apples in so long. I have seen the canned ones at the commissary and the picture on the label is really gross so I have not thought about how good they could be.
